The Concourse F location opening this week has seven sleep suites, including two with tarmac views. It’s located between gates F2 and F4.
Minute Suites also plans in the next couple of months to open another new location on Concourse E with 16 sleep suites and 2 showers.
Each sleep suite has a daybed, desk and office chair, smart TV, wi-fi and an Alexa smart speaker.
Using the sleep rooms isn’t cheap. They cost $48 an hour, or $175 for an overnight 8-hour stay. It costs $30 to take a shower, or $20 for a shower as an add-on to a suite rental.
Minute Suites does allow mothers who need to pump or breastfeed to use a suite for 30 minutes for free, an option in addition to Mamava breastfeeding pods in locations around the airport.
The expansion of sleep units at Hartsfield-Jackson has been planned for years, but was delayed and then postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Finally, when things started coming back, we were like, ‘Let’s build it,’” said Minute Suites co-founder Daniel Solomon.
The Concourse B location near gate B16, open since 2009, is the first Minute Suites location nationally, and the company now has more than a dozen locations across the country.
Hartsfield-Jackson does not have an on-site hotel, though airport officials are also renewing efforts to pursue development of a hotel on a site just outside the domestic terminal. It would take years for the airport to complete planning, go through the contracting process to find a developer and have the hotel built.
